cartridge not found

HP 8610
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Today I started getting the error "Cartridge Problem"after one of the cartridges ran out of ink, replaced it with a genuine HP cartridge and got the error  that the printer cartridge is missing, which is seated in place.  My Officejet Pro 8610 printer that is only about 2 years old.   I have genuine HP cartridges in the machine.  I've already tried multiple times all the recommended steps of removing/reinserting cartridges, cleaning electrical contacts, and unplugging printer which made no change, tried updating firmware, which was already updated, can't clean the printheads because it thinks there is not a full set of cartridges.  Frustrating.
